What your camper should be equipped with before you go on the road

After a lifetime in the advocating industry, I finally decided to retire and give myself more spare time. And, since I always enjoyed traveling and going new places, I figured out I should give camping a try. So, after consulting with specialists I purchased a camper or an RV and decided to start going across the country to see more of its beauties.

During my trips, I managed to learn new things about owning a camper, as well as the downsides of this type of vehicle. Thus, based on my experience, here are the main things your camper should feature in order to consider you made the right choice.

A generous bathroom

The first thing to take into account when looking for an RV is to have your own private bathroom. It should be fully equipped, including a shower and RV toilets, and a mini sink. I cannot stress the importance of a bathroom facility inside your RV enough, considering this will be your home for the next period of time. And, if you’re a travel enthusiast just like I am, you will certainly require your privacy, even when you camp in special RV camps across the country.

Common showers and waiting for your turn to the toilette, plus having to get out of your RV during the night are only some of the inconveniences of owning a camper without a private bathroom.


Laundry appliances

Spending so much time on the go will certainly get you out of clean clothes in a matter of days or weeks, regardless of how big is your closet. Most of the RV parks come with laundromats or laundry facilities, but if you don’t plan to camp too much inside these parks, you will need as much as possible from the comfort of a fully equipped home.

Thus, I suggest trying to do your laundry inside your own RV by equipping it with a small washing machine. There are plenty of these products specially designed to fit in the narrowest places, and RVs are not an exception. Just be careful to not overload it and avoid expecting professional drying results.

And, since I mentioned the laundry part, I would like to add one more thing – always pack clothes for all seasons, especially if you want to travel across the country. It gets really chilly during the night and, if your heating system collapses, you may want to stay warm until fixing it.

Storage deposits

Last but not least, you’ll need as much storage deposit as you can get. RVs are the perfect homes to practice your maximized utility design ideas, so make sure to include cabinets and closets in every space. Pack them with fresh and clean towels, extra sheets, and everything else that will keep you comfortable during long rides.



My blog

I was an attorney for almost forty years. Once I retired, I started hanging out with some of my friends, and I quickly came to the conclusion that my physical shape was a major disappointment. I used to be into sports when I was younger and due to my hectic schedule, I was unable to go to the gym as often as I wanted to. Fortunately, my retirement changed everything in my life, in that I started having a lot more spare time that I could use to get back in shape. Not only did I manage to lose some of the pounds I had been wanting to lose for years but I also joined a gym and started learning a bit about boxing and even martial arts. I always enjoyed soccer, basketball, and baseball, and since I was a good player when I was in college, I decided to volunteer to a children’s charity so that I could help some kids coming from broken families deal with their issues.

Eventually, I found that blogging was the perfect way to document my experiences as a trainer and even describe what some of the kids I work with have to go through on a daily basis. Sometimes, it’s heartbreaking to see what misfit parents are capable of, but all I can say is that nothing is as bad as it seems. I like talking to the children so that I learn a bit about their stories, and once I’ve done this I manage to correlate their issues with the training sessions so that they’re able to work on their problems by sticking to a sports routine.

Whatever the workout or training I teach, I’m always careful to explain that, while boxing and other martial arts are fundamentally violent sports, they should never be used to attack someone. It goes without saying that learning several self-defense techniques is never a bad idea, but if it’s possible for a person to avoid clashing with someone else, I urge them to do so.

Children enjoy sports far more than adults, and that’s why I find it so easy to work with them. They never complain about being too out of breath especially when they’re competing against one another. In my opinion, sports and getting good exercise while you are still young is key to shaping your body later on. I’ve seen that people who go out jogging ever since they were seven years old almost never put on a lot of weight in the long run, and as you know, obesity is always on the rise in the United States. On the one hand, I’m acutely aware of the fact that most individuals put on weight because cheaper food is packed with calories, and many Americans don’t afford to buy healthy snacks. On the other hand, because working schedules are so busy, few people get to work out. Besides, workout equipment costs a lot of money. A few light exercises in the morning and the evening never hurt anyone and neither did jogging during the weekends. I’m hoping that my experiences will allow you to learn more about sports, in general, and their beneficial effect on child development.
